Through it all, the help and support of every knitter on the Ravelry group was always there. Nearly 5000 amazing knitters helped each other and cheered each other on through every step of the way.

Haven’t joined us yet? If you are feeling inspired to try it, Roselle Tee Video Sweater pattern comes with hours of video tutorials, all the gauge option and knitting how-tos for only will be $16.00!! It’s never too late to jump into any video class, as the videos (embedded in the pattern) never expire, and the message boards stay live forever.

Now it’s time to discuss…
